<quoted text>I see you're back, Piggy, having returned from your recent election humiliation in your presidential wager with me. Oh well, why not.
The employer may have known about the woman's voting choice either directly or by overhearing it. But how does that give him the right to penalize her for voting for whom she chose?
Think about this on a larger scale. Imagine corporate America not only contributing endless amounts of money to influence elections, but also intimidating employees by threatening their livelihoods if their voting choices were known to them, and they disapproved of those choices. That would not be an America I could be proud of.
Yes, you have the right to keep your vote secret. But you also have the right to shout it from the rooftops without the threat of intimidation. I voted for President Obama, and I don't mind the whole world knowing it. And I assure you, if the shoe were on the other hoof, this post would no different (except for my voting choice).
Been back Larry,don't you ever read your replies? You voted for Obama,why? He has been a anti-American racist failure since day one and the American people don't know anything about his pass,why? What is he hiding and why is his party dodging any and all questions about him? You are correct about everyone should have the right to "shout from the rooftops without threats of intimidation",maybe you would want to tell the president,his party and the MSM that.The last I checled this was still a free country even tho the left doesn't think so. BTW: Good jazzfest this coming year,check it out.

I imagine that things like this are
why voting is done secretly.
The Obama/Biden bumper sticker probably gave it away.

Its not being jaded, it is knowing that things will get worse and worse and your powerless to do anything about it. Imagine thirty more years of growing deficits each year added to the cumulative deficit and to the deficits that are owed to others. And we are catching a massive criminal break with a very low prime rate. I and others had/have aright o what is ours. You and your swine are a thieves. That is the personal issue. And we son't save anymore. We will spend what we got left. Work with less enthusiasm. and watch an underground economy swell to epic proportions. The government is already talking about chipped cards and the dreaded follow on for welfare recipients because of the massive cheating. You proud of stealing another man's wealth for himself and family Go Blue? I only get two choices in voting.

Too much "massive" through the tears and the sniveling.

"Piss poor planning on your part does not necessitate an emergency on mine."

How about you get rid of the internet (assuming you post from home) and put that extra $20 in the bank every month? It's called a savings account.

And if you're posting from work, find a job that pays you to work instead of posting on a public forum all day - they generally pay more anyways.

Just some crazzzzzy ideas.

Oh, I empathize! My fellow toilet scrubbers once took a vote on the size of my Vernus fly trap! The nerve of them to compare me to the LA sinkhole!

Reprisals are the republican way. In fact, while they are re-branding, perhaps they should just go ahead and call themselves the Reprisal Party since they are so vengeful. I'm sure I'll pay for that remark...

Its what you represent. And who you are means nothing if you treat others terribly. But if you are important, make things right. Like many other Americans have done and are held in high esteem for their transgressions, you can buy me out.

I can't if your the same person posting as several people. But I did type to fast and mumble the words a bit. Remember. It may be funny to you, but there will always be a strong enough percentage of this population who are disconnected to your insanity no matter how much the paid off politicians, lawyers, judges and others screw over the population. You freaking thief. You don't even know what the cumulative budget deficits have done to us and the false currency that enabled it. But it has to be the Repubs fault. Always is. Believe me, I can laugh to if I wanted to at all the funny stuff like government abuses, killings and murders that progressives have bought to America by their insane policies. One day I will. But out of respect for people that I know of all backgrounds throughout my life I owe them compassion that you guys have none of except for your selfish designs. You will lose. The cities will burn.
